The Children's Corner: Episode 4115

Broadcast Date: Undetermined

Josie opens with a visit to Daniel Striped Tiger who has been busy keeping up with the Tame Tiger Torganization. Daniel shares with Josie about the difficulties he has maintaining the good condition of his whiskers. Josie blows some soap bubbles and Daniel unsuccessfully tries to catch one.

On her way to visit Calendarland, Josie stops short of the castle and blows some bubbles towards a very confused King Friday XIII. When she arrives at the castle, she claims to know nothing about the mysterious bubbles leading King Friday to wonder if his eyes have grown tired from "taking care of next month." Soon enough, Josie reveals that she is responsible for the bubbles.

Moving back to her desk, Josie shares a collection of detailed illustrations as she tells the story of Josephine the Short-Neck Giraffe.

Visiting X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat, Josie finds that Henrietta has a new dress but nowhere to go. After some friendly encouragement, a bashful X the Owl agrees to join Henrietta for a movie. Before Josie leaves, she and X sing One to a Dozen.

Josie concludes for the day by singing Goodnight God and then recounting the bubble gag she played on King Friday to Daniel Striped Tiger.
